  1. I have to chuckle a bit that the Chinese leaders are allowing defaults to occur.

    They have always stepped in up until now and when growth drops below the line up they step with a new stimulus package, only for it to be blown on malinvestment.

    It must be frustrating talking rebalancing knowing it is wasted breath and that more stimulus will only fast track the massive explosion.

  2. It’s ok. This will be contained within China………..

    It will be interesting to see who’s really been swimming naked: The Chinese with their forced investment and huge gold/silver/copper and other commidity stock piles, or the USA with their FIAT currency that only has the backing of future taxes upon the American population.

  3. Who can blame anyone for being apathetic these days. Seriously. I’m gonna take up basket weaving.
